Factorial nutrient enrichment expcrimcnts were conducted with water containing natural phytoplankton assemblages collected from Grand Traverse Bay. Levels of phosphorus (phosphate) were 5, 15, 25, 40, and 60 pg P liter4 and levels of nitrogen (nitrate) were 0.23, 0.84, and 1.12 mg N liter-l. Nutrients were maintained at these levels by additions at 2or S-day intervals. Two different analyses of variance tests indicated that the responses were due to effects of phosphorus and not nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
